RN24 - Science and Technology

Coordinators: Ana Delicado, Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal,

Bernhard Wieser, Graz University of Technology, Austria,

We are living challenging times, in which Science and Technology both plays a crucial role in addressing catastrophic environmental, health, or social problems, and is also increasingly questioned and undermined by conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers, and populist politicians, among others. The Sociology of Science and Technology must offer fresh insights on how alternative futures can be built based simultaneously on expert/scientific knowledge and on democratic participation and public engagement on sociotechnical issues. RN24 Science and Technology makes multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary efforts to combine: theory building on changing relations and co-constitution of science, technology and society; methodological advancements of qualitative and quantitative empirical social sciences to study interrelations of science, technology and society; sociological, philosophical, anthropological, historical, psychological, economic and political science analysis; and technology and innovation policy studies.

Examples of possible topics/ keywords relevant for our sessions are:

  • Science and Technology (Open Session)

  • Science policy & national research systems

  • Scientific careers and practices

  • Science and the public

  • Science, technology, innovation & society

  • Gender in/equality in science and technology

  • National & regional specificities and differences in science and technology

  • Science, Technology & Education

Gender, diversity and intersectionality perspectives are welcome. PhD students' submissions are especially encouraged. Authors are invited to submit their abstracts to the general session or a specific topic. Specific sessions will be created a posteriori.
